Who pays for that ?. Ain't free or cheap.

Anyone who actually cares for animals. Same as with any 'rescue'

You are clueless. There are millions of animals alive and part
of the food chain.

And how more tax are you, personally prepared to pay ?, in order
to feed them,

They would look after themselves (sheep in these areas I'm told we
can't otherwise use). People offering to let them live out their
natural lives in return for the cows cutting their grass (as they are
doing now).

No they don't 'look after themselves'. Are you going to let them all
roam free in national parks because in case you hadn't noticed, most
land in the UK is privately owned. You don't use a 3/4 tonne dairy
cow to cut your grass, unless you want it to look like the Somme
during wet weather. Where are they going to be kept during the winter ?.
Who is going to spend a fortune on fertiliser to grow grass for silage
or hay, who is going to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on
the heavy duty machinery needed to cut, dry, bale, double-chop and
move it into storage ?.

Please don't bother with 'let them roam freely' argument, because
you cannot allow dairy bulls to roam free. They are dangerous.

See above. 5 years on, all gone.

They live a lot longer than 5 years. High performance Dairy Bulls
are valuable animals. They are very dangerous animals too. By law
they have to be contained and well away from the public, or are
you suggesting that such animals should be abandoned in Epping forest
or Hyde park ?. Totally clueless idiocy.

There is no 'free' NHS for anaimals,

Of course there is. Vets are obliged to look after injured wild
animals and there are plenty of rescues that are funded by supporters
(so the animals don't have to pay).

No they aren't. Just because vets occasionally treat some injured
wild animals for free does not extend to treating millions of
abandoned farm animals for free. Grow up. Without any farm animals
there won't be any need for anything like the number of vets we
have now. QED If they cannot earn a living from farm animals many
will go abroad. Most of our Vetinary colleges would close. Who would
want to be a vet with no prospect of work ?. Without large animals
to train on, the only skills they would have is working with pets.
It won't take long for all the knowledge of large animals to be
lost, permanently.

You must be almost down the earths core now in the deep, deep hole you
are digging into *?.*
